I heard about a field out in nature...

Biwako Valley offers seasonal views of nature. It’s definitely a spot for viewing cherry blossoms in spring! Cherry blossoms can be enjoyed for a long time as 1,000 cherry blossom trees lining the path fully bloom at different time periods depending on the altitude. 300,000 daffodils in early May, rhododendrons and primroses in late May, pampas grass in September, and fall leaves in October – experience the seasons that nature has to offer!
